The Busbys are back!
After much fan speculation that the series was potentially cancelled, the TLC unscripted television series OutDaughtered is coming back. Now in their third season, the Busby quintuplets, their older sister, and their parents Adam and Danielle Busby are set to return to TV later this month.
America's only set of all-female quintuplets — Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Olivia Marie, Parker Kate, and Riley Paige — were born at 28 weeks and are already 21-months-old. With their older sister, five-year-old Blayke, added to the mix, there's no shortage of content for TV.
"We were super skeptical about who is going to think of little ol' us are interesting enough to want to watch a TV show about us and still are a little to this day," Adam wrote in a blog post on the family's website. "We agreed to the show because we thought, well, at the very least we would have a pretty awesome documentary of the first year of the girls' life if no one watched."
So if you're a fan of the show who happens to be wondering what's going on with Hazel's health issues — the baby girl recently underwent eye surgery and is notably less social than her outgoing siblings of the same age — or which story lines to expect when the show returns, keep reading to find out what to expect this season from OutDaughtered.
When does Season 3 premiere?
The new season of OutDaughtered premieres on TLC on Tuesday, July 11.
When can I watch OutDaughtered on TLC?
The Busbys can be found on TLC Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST.
Are the quintuplets identical?
The quints are not identical — however, out of the five girls, two of them, Olivia and Ava, are a set of identical twins.
Is OutDaughtered on Netflix?
The show isn't on Netflix at this point in time but full episodes can be streamed for free on TLC's website. Viewers can also watch full episodes on Amazon for $2.99 each.
Were the Busby quints conceived naturally or via IVF?
According to their blog, Adam and Danielle tried to conceive naturally for a year before deciding that infertility issues were at play. They did several intrauterine inseminations, many to none avail, until finally, IUI gave them their daughter Blayke. The couple tried to have baby No. 2 with another set of IUI regiments and after two months, learned they were pregnant with five babies.
